Haven't heard him in a while. Is that the V or VI? Seen the VI on eBay for $625 lowest price, not insubstantial, up there with some planars like the He's, Koss planar is more, but sometimes discounted to around there. Have you been able to compare any of these or similar?

Sorry. VI

 

 

I haven't been able to compare them to other headphones in that price range (or higher), but there are a few such comparisons on the HOPE VI appreciation thread. Here is the latest---> "I've tried the HE-400, the HE-500, and the HE-6, as well as the LCD-2. The PH6 is so far above them it's not even funny. Fuller bass, better mids, clearer highs, more pleasant imaging and soundstage, just everything. I was ready to buy some LCD-2s but pulled the trigger here, and incredibly glad I did."

 

I can say this headphone and the FX850 get the most of my listening time out of all of my others (even my great sounding customs). I have the HOPE VI on my ears right now.

Some phones are just dialed in.  These relatively inexpensive duel dynamic micro driver oems are way more sonically satisfying then they should be for the money or the specs.

They are just very "musical" and give you the essence of a musical performance with clarity and enthusiasm, texture and rhythm, but not so much analytical detail.  they are

comfortable, well made, and come with a nice zipper pouch but few accessories.  they deserve some tip rolling experiments (not done yet, DS suggests wide bore tips will improve sound even)

Not the warmth or grace of the On-1s or soundstage of the Zero Audio Singulos, but a worthy pocket to go ism, a pleasure to listen to various kinds of music on, and a real discovery IMHO.

Give a try, and if you don't enjoy them, give em away...but i think you might like to enjoy them for a new musical friend...the bass mid tremble b a lance is outstanding....

Product DetailsATH RE700  retro styled aluminum driver portable headphones

 

 

 

Middle of the night listening with my burned in ATH RE700 headphones:

out of the new LG 8.3" tablet Verizon gave me with my upgrade to HTC one M8, through

FiloE18  Kundlen (as amp, no dac output used),  FABULOUS sound listening to cloud mp3

from Amazon.  so smooth, i fell asleep listening to Broken Bells on the cloud, which rarely

ever happens, woke up humming the song i heard last....these phones have some

sibulence, but they improve the mp3 sound with very very well integrated bass and subbass

that is an improvement over the previous 700 ATH series phones.  a worthy companion for

listening to iOS or android devices, and the extra amping makes the bass even better and

your brain likes it......no grain in the music, gets very musical and you forget it is the cloud you are listening to.

at the new discounted price of 100$ (back up to 121 today)  a worthy travel and late night companion....thanks to VIENBO for his

encouragement to give these phones an audition...

There was someone, not to long ago saying they are indeed better than the es700.
post #24445 of 32862

In some ways YES.  base AND sub bass more integrated.  designed to play smoothly out of IOS and android devices and sound like music

with compressed files,. less detail and smaller soundstage than es700.  retro styling kind of odd and bulky. but drivers are big tech breakthrough

i do believe.

post #24446 of 32862

they were at that 100$ price point on the big A site and at beach audio. but they went up since last weekend to 125.00 or so.

check sonic sense also, a bunch of the big consumer sites for electronics are carrying them now .

OK, long day, 10 hour pick up of my daughter from college, 1 music post, no energy for more right now
Really interesting band, though, give a listen dog Dogdrive Discovery for today...

post #24449 of 32862

A friend of mine is looking for a circumaural closed-back headphone that is relatively portable and has good bass. He specifically wants to bring them with him to the library to study with. His budget is $150. The only headphone I have in mind is the ATH-M50 or ATH-M50X, but was wondering if anyone else here has suggestions?

post #24450 of 32862
Tbh I'd suggest he looks into Iems as they provide better portability and are also much easier to find great sound without breaking the budget. The IM50, Tenores, and Basso comes to mind.
